1.1 Researcher accountabilities

The British Educational Research Association’s ethical guidelines (2018) are helpful when thinking about researcher accountabilities. This guidance is organised according to five sets of responsibilities, to:

  1. participants
  2. sponsors, clients and stakeholders in research
  3. the community of educational researchers
  4. publication and dissemination
  5. researchers’ wellbeing and development.

To help you think about this range of responsibilities, consider Case study 3.1 on the next page.
